Parties and Functions

This property is surrounded by permanent residents and is located in a quiet part of town.  Guests that don’t respect the neighbours will be evicted forfeiting their full tariff and security deposit. 

If we get a complaint from a neighbour (they have instructions on what to do if they suspect a party), the police or one of our employees, and we can corroborate that claim in any way, you will lose your full security deposit.  No questions asked.

If you are planning a party or feel that your fellow guests will be a noisy group, please look elsewhere.


Most properties now have access to NBN, although we do occasionally have issues which can take some time to rectify. Where internet is advertised, we do our best to keep it online, however, please understand that problems with the internet are beyond our control.

Arrivals and Departures

Wherever possible, we will contact you the day before to offer early arrival and/or late departure.

If you don’t hear from us, we ask that you don’t arrive before 3pm on the day of your booking (where the property has been cleaned and is ready before 3pm we will let you know that you can check in early).  Departure is strictly 10am so that the cleaners have time to prepare the property for the next guests.

If you find something that you would expect to have at YOUR holiday home is missing, please let us know and we will do our best to arrange it.

We had a very comfortable stay at Nelsons Nook. Small touches such as pantry items and Nespresso machine were appreciated, as was the supplied linen and beach towels. Close to great beach and park, short drive walk or ride to local shops.

We absolutely loved our stay at Nelsonu2019s Nook- close walk to beautiful white sand beaches (Barfleur, Nelsons). Very much appreciated our welcome gift upon arrival and the responsive communication prior to and during our stay. The house had all the creature comforts and we felt very much at home for our three night stay. Weu2019ll definitely be back!

Nelson's Nook is a spacious and well presented four bedroom house, ideal for one large family like ours, or two small families. With two sitting rooms plus the deck with table and chairs, there is heaps of space to spread out. It's an easy walk to Nelson and Orion beaches too.

By Marie-Claire, who stayed in 1st January 2018

We had a fabulous stay at Nelsons Nook. The location is fantastic, being a few minutes walk to beautiful beaches. Spacious lounges, and a very well-equipped kitchen made our stay very comfortable. The garden was fully enclosed which was ideal for our dog and we would highly recommend this property to families.

By Kevin, who stayed in 1st December 2017

Best stay ever! The location is absolutely perfect and the house felt so warm and inviting. It is a short walk to the beach and the views of Jervis Bay are mind blowing. Could not ask for more. The BBQ is in a perfect location and made lunch great. This property will be our first choice when visiting Jervis Bay.

By Natalie, who stayed in 1st March 2016

We had a great time staying at the property. The house was clean and very nicely decorated. There were plenty of amenities such as kitchen utensils, air con, fans for the bedrooms, foxtel and BBQ. It's situated in a great location, only a 2 minute walk to the beach. I highly recommend this place. The service was great from start to finish. Very impressed. I will definitely use the company again.

By Perina, who stayed in 1st April 2015

We found this house fantastic for a mixed group as the layout allowed people to do separate things comfortably. The du0329cor was lovely with a real holiday beachy feel. Great shower! Having linen supplied and cleaning included was a real treat and made packing so much easier. It was a short walk from some great beaches but we were happy inside when it rained. Thankyou so much for the milk and wine - a lovely touch.

By Glenda, who stayed in 1st January 2015

Great house. Lots of everything we needed. Milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine on arrival - very nice touch. If it just had water views (but then the cost would be too high). Highly recommend, everything worked well.
